Have you been thinking about whitening your teeth? There are so many different options available it can be hard to decide on the best option for you. While over-the-counter treatments are inexpensive, they do not offer the same results as the treatments offered at your dentist’s office. In fact, they can end up costing the same as a professional whitening over time without the same level of whitening.
Lee Dental Care offers in-office and take-home whitening with Philips Zoom tooth whitening. With Zoom you can have teeth that are up to 6 to 10 shades whiter in just one visit!
Zoom in-office can whiten your smile up to 8 shades brighter in only 45 minutes. And we offer the Zoom Pen or Zoom take-home whitening kits to help you keep your professional results longer.

Zoom whitening uses prescription strength 25% whitening gel along with a special activating light. The light enables Zoom to not only removes surface stains but enter the tooth enamel and dentin to whiten under-the-surface stains. This is how Zoom produces great results in as little as 45 minutes.
Zoom only works on natural teeth; it will not whiten crowns, veneers, fillings, or dentures.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
- Your lips and gums will be covered, leaving the teeth exposed.
- Zoom hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is applied to your teeth
- The gel remains in place for 15 minutes while the light is activated.
- The gel is applied for three 15-minute sessions of light activation, for a total treatment time of 45 minutes.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Some people experience tooth sensitivity for anywhere from one to two days after treatment. You will be advised to avoid certain tooth-staining foods and drinks for up to 72 hours after your treatment to ensure the best result.
You can maintain your results by using the Zoom Whitening Pen or a Zoom take-home Whitening Kit.

Zoom At-Home Whitening Kits
